Robert Anderson (1917-2009), author, is best-remembered for his play Tea and Sympathy which made its Broadway debut in 1953 and was made into an MGM film in 1956; both starred Deborah Kerr. He also wrote the screenplay for The Nun’s Story (1959) for which he was Oscar-nominated as was his 1970 screen adaptation of I Never Sang for My Father. He was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1982.
